TNR program.....

The Humane Society is committed to our targeted TNR (trap neuter and return/relocate) program and is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant from Maddies Fund,  in order to continue this important work of reducing the size of cat colonies in and around Somerset. #ThanksToMaddie

Stray to Strut....

The work of rescuers is exhausting and often heartbreaking but then we get a story like this to share. 

This sweet dog was a stray at the Animal Shelter here in Pulaski County and now LOOK. A Runway model in is sweet.

Thanks to the many who work so many hours to arrange rescue; transport and adoption of the thousands of animals who need help every day.

On sale at the PCHS building during adoption days on first and third Saturdays and other events.

Justice for Mira....

McCreary County Grand Jury Drops Case against Man for Dog Torture
Meeting for their regular August session, the McCreary County Grand Jury returned a “no true bill” in the case of Larry Meadows who had been charged with the torture of a dog or cat.  Meadows was arrested after a dog suffered severe injuries and eventually died from those injuries. A no true bill from the Grand Jury means there was not sufficient evidence presented to warrant charges and for the case to proceed.
PLEASE find out who your elected officials are in Frankfort and write or call them  insisting on better animal legislation.

Justice for Snow....

        Legislative update: 

These cases of animal abuse are still pending in Pulaski County, KY Courts.

Roark: accused of kicking Snow, a neighbor’s cat, to death; case still with the Grand Jury.

More information about court dates etc. will follow as PCHS knows more.

Making a difference

The Pulaski County Humane Society  works alongside the Pulaski County Animal Shelter to save many dogs and cats from being euthanized.

Each week, PCHS members go to the shelter and transport dogs and cats to several different rescues.

Some dogs are adopted as far away as New York state and Ontario, Canada.

This is just one of the ways that the Pulaski County Humane Society saves the lives of animals.
